Leo D. Maloney (January 4, 1888 – November 2, 1929) was an American film actor, director, producer, and screenwriter of the silent era.[1][2]


Maloney was born in Santa Rosa, California, and built the "Leo Maloney Studio" in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. He appeared in more than 150 films between 1911 and 1929. He also directed 47 films between 1914 and 1929. Maloney's final film was one of the first sound pictures, 1929's Overland Bound. While at a party in Manhattan to celebrate the completion of that picture, Maloney suffered a fatal stroke.
